Preparing to Fly

Late yesterday afternoon I watched the male osprey at the nest in Island Beach State Park fly to the nest with a fish, land for a second, and take off again. I realized he was trying to teach his 3 chicks to fly! It was so fascinating to watch. Always is! The nest is getting crowded with 5 osprey stretching their long wings. Then, I watched one of the chicks try to lift. It was as if she was saying “Look at what I can do!” LOVE watching nature in action. They will be flying very soon.
